Quick question from a customer regarding the cancer warning on The Dr Earth Tomato, Vegetable & Herb Fertilizer – 4LB. I informed the customer that a lot of companies are required to put that on their label if they choose not to specifically test their products for heavy metals etc. Is that the case with this product, or is that warning on there for another issue?
Most companies put it not because we do not want to disclose heavy metals, we do on our aapfco site listed on the bag, its because California law mandates it. Lawsuits were flying around a couple of years ago frivolously and even Starbucks has this sign on its front door! Its simply smart business to disclose that but it does not change the quality of our products or the quality of Starbucks coffee, its a business protection move. I see it on certified organic food products too.
